Milwaukee Mezzanines

Create the Perfect Workspace on Your Milwaukee Warehouse Mezzanine Deck

If your warehouse ramps up production during the holiday season, you are probably getting ready to hire additional holiday help. While more hands can mean more work gets down, it can also quickly become an issue of space. You’ll need assembly teams, order pickers, packers, and other positions filled with great people who can move quickly to serve your customers. If they don’t have the space that they need to get the job done, what good will more people do for you? Our Milwaukee warehouse mezzanine deck could be the perfect solution.
Our mezzanine deck gives you a new floor of workspace, adding a new level that can be used to build workspaces that allow employees to complete orders efficiently. Move your assembly team to the upper level, give them space to spread out their supplies and tools so they can quickly assemble products. Or more management and administrative staff to the upper level, giving them a bird’s eye view of the work below and freeing up valuable space on the warehouse floor.
However you decide to use it, our Milwaukee mezzanine deck can be an incredible useful addition to your warehouse. The time to order one is right now! We can have it in place for your holiday ramp-up so you can put it to good use. If you are interested in placing your order or getting more information on the mezzanine levels we can provide, give DAK Equipment a call or contact us through our website today. We’ll help you find the space you need so you can put your crew to work!

How Businesses Around the Country Are Using Their Mezzanine Deck

Putting a mezzanine deck into your Milwaukee warehouse can give you a huge increase in your square footage without actually expanding your facility. Many businesses are using mezzanine levels for a variety of purposes, from expediting shipping to increasing storage area. Here are some examples recently cited in an article from Modern Materials Handling:

  • Gilt, a flash-sale online retailer, is using a multi-level mezzanine deck for their shipping operations. They’ve turned the items sold in one day over to a robotic order fulfillment system while slower-selling items are stored on the mezzanine and picked by hand. This arrangement allows them to get their first wave of orders shipped within 24 hours without worrying about reserve inventory slowing them down.
  • Home Depot is making their e-commerce business more efficient with a mezzanine deck in their warehouses. Their mezzanine is split into two areas, single line orders and multi-line orders, where all items are delivered to be packaged. This gives them the space they need to get items packaged and out the door quickly to their online customers.

If either of these examples have given you an idea about how you could put a mezzanine level to work in your own Milwaukee warehouse, give DAK Equipment & Engineering a call! We’ll help you get a mezzanine deck for your warehouse that’s the right size and help you get it set up as a shipping, picking, packing, or storage area. Our team is experienced in warehouse mezzanine levels, so call us or get in touch with us through our website today.

3 Steps to Milwaukee Warehouse Transformation

Warehouses need to undergo constant evaluation for their efficiency and workflow. Occasionally a warehouse will need to undergo a complete transformation. This may happen when:

  • Warehouse operations haven’t been properly evaluated or updated for many years
  • Your business starts handling more SKUs or a different type of product
  • You move into a new space and need to get it set up for your team

DAK Equipment in Milwaukee can help you transform your warehouse. Three of the things we recommend most often to warehouse managers and owners are the addition of modular offices, mezzanines, and pallet shelves into their space. These three warehouse items play a major role in the setup and operations of your space and adding them can completely transform your warehouse. They can help you work more efficiently, safely, and get more done. Here’s how:

  • Mezzanines. These setups add square footage to your warehouse without an expensive or messy construction project. You’ll be able to take advantage of the overhead area and add a second (or even third) floor inside of your warehouse. Expand your operations with additional shelving, office space, storage, or even pack areas.
  • Modular offices. This can be one of the easiest and most affordable ways to transform your space. Modular offices can be used not only as office space for your team, either. You can add a break room, a clean room, or employee locker room in as little as a weekend.
  • Pallet shelves. Having the right shelving in your warehouse is the first step to having a warehouse that meets your needs. If you struggle to create enough storage or it takes your team a long time to find the merchandise that they need on your current shelves, we can help. DAK Equipment can also make sure you are getting the right pallet shelves for your new space.

Using one of these is great, but using all three can lead to total transformation for your warehouse. Simply throwing these items into your Milwaukee warehouse isn’t going to be enough, though. You’ll need to make a comprehensive plan that takes into consideration the kind of products you are working with, the size of your warehouse, the goals you have, and the budget that you are working with for the warehouse makeover. One thing that many warehouse managers overlook is that in most cases, you will end up recouping the cost of your warehouse transformation over the long run; the increased production and efficiency will pay for the expenses of any equipment and downtime that you need to complete the new setup.

Don’t put off your warehouse transformation any longer! Make it the goal for your business to in the New Year to evaluation, design, and implement a new warehouse setup. DAK Equipment & Engineering has the warehouse design, sales, and installation services you need. Get in touch with us over the phone or through our website. Our project managers will work with you to deliver exactly what you need! You’ll appreciate their experience, knowledge, and expertise that comes from years of working with other Milwaukee warehouses. Start your transformation today!
